Skyline Chili Replenished

Received a box in the mail from my “little brother” Sam.  (Yay he reads my blog!). He lives right outside of Cincinnati and is responsible for my Skyline Chili addiction.


I’ve gotten some Coloradans asking me “What in the heck is Skyline Chili?”  Skyline Chili is to Cincinnati like McDonald’s is to anywhere else.  In Cincinnati on one side of the street you will have a Skyline Chili joint and on the other side of the street you will have a White Castle Burger joint.


I had forgotten about the special plates for your three-way, four-way or five-way  making it easy to dig into without losing too much off the sides!

Another Cincinnati favorite is Montgomery Inn.  The barbecue there is awesome, it might be the secret recipe or the humidity we just don’t have here in Denver messing with your taste buds.


This restaurant was opened in 1951 and the famous barbecue sauce recipe is over 60 years old!

In 1949 Nicholas Lambrinides introduced Cincinnati to Skyline Chili bringing his family recipes from Greece.


My brother has sent me care packages from Cincinnati before and they always have these oyster crackers, I don’t know where they go because as far as I  can recall they’re not served with any of the “ways”………  Skyline Chili police help with this mystery please!

The best part of this box is when I make these dishes it’ll bring back the memory of visiting my brother in Cincinnati and just hanging out with family.  XOXO thank you Sam!
